Fargo HotelsThrust into the limelight by the classic Coen brothers' film, which shares its name, Fargo's locals radiate warmth and friendliness. The perfect example of a laid back American town, Fargo's 3 universities and downtown area - which thrives to the sound track of chinking glasses and laughter - help to keep the place young and vibrant. While the hardy townsfolk love the bone-chillingly cold winters, summer is ideal for visitors looking for a little heat, with temperatures averaging 80°F.Things to seeOne of Fargo's main draws is the gargantuan Fargodome. Whether singing yourself hoarse at a concert, or roaring with the crowd as the Bisons run in another touchdown - the indoor dome hosts events to suit every taste. If you arrive a little early, Fargo Air Museum is right next door and is sure to get the imagination soaring. The museum features airworthy planes and space rockets, and is run by a welcoming team of volunteers who are brimming with enthusiasm. A train ride at Yunker Farm's Children's Museum will delight younger kids, while the sprawling West Acres Mall is great for a little retail therapy or a bite to eat. Don't be alarmed if you hear a lion growling in the distance, or a wolf howling mournfully into the night while exploring Fargo. The city's Red River Zoo is centrally located, and has an impressive collection of animals – from the cuties to the killers.Hotels in
